Exciting newcomer Mr Big Stuff has announced his brilliant, hooky debut single I Need Space, featuring synthpop auteurs Strange Talk, out now. Mr Big Stuff, otherwise known as Gregory Truman, has also announced a quirky and fun video clip to accompany the track, created in collaboration with Lionel Towers (Gypsy & The Cat) and Andrew Mortlock (Cookin’ on 3 Burners, The Griswolds). I Need Space is a witty, poppy introduction to this up and coming Australian hip hop artist.
I Need Space is a great example of a satisfying and exciting cross-section of pop and hiphop, and it’s impressive to see an artist debut with such a strong, established sound and aesthetic. Cool and collected, Mr Big Stuff’s brilliant lyricism floats cleverly atop a bed of rolling percussion and smooth synths.
Mr Big Stuff is a new face on the scene, but it won’t stay that way for long, as an EP is already in the works for the charming hip hop artist. Music and dance has been a passion for Mr Big Stuff since childhood, as he sweetly enthuses, “I love to live life to the fullest. I was in a bad state, mentally and health-wise, for a while there, but now I have a new zest on life. I used to hide away because of my size, but now I embrace it! I got into making music through dancing, and the love and feeling that music gave me. I’m filled with joy to be able to finally come out from the shadows and show the world what has always been inside of me.”
